​Lennon appointed Celtic boss on 12 month rolling deal

Neil Lennon has been confirmed as Celtic's permanent boss.

The 47 year old replaced Brendan Rodgers in February and guided the club to an eighth title in a row in his second stint in charge.

"When I was asked to take over, I felt it was my duty to do so," Lennon said.

"Celtic will always be my club and I wanted to help finish the job which had been started.

"I want to be part of delivering more of these great achievements and I look forward to working with the players, the staff and the fans to make this happen."

Lennon has signed a 12-month rolling contract, with John Kennedy continuing as assistant manager and Damien Duff retained as first-team coach.

"It is a massive honour," Lennon added. "I had always dreamed of returning to this role on a permanent basis and I am absolutely delighted to once again be part of one of the biggest and best clubs in the world - an institution which really does mean so much to me and one which has always been such a huge part of my life.

"In the space of just a few weeks, Trophy Day at Celtic Park and securing the treble treble at Hampden are two of my greatest days in football."
